Buffalo, N.Y. (WIVB) - Thousands came to downtown Buffalo Saturday to enjoy the sights, sounds and--most importantly--the tastes of the Queen City at the 29th annual Taste of Buffalo.
The two-day event is the largest annual food festival in the nation, and hungry western New Yorkers know why.
"It's a great city and the local food here is what it's all about, said Sarah Prisaznuk of Amherst. "Buffalo's all about the food!"
With the temperatures soaring, cooling fans were almost as big of a hit as the food. The fire department reports that they had to treat three people for heat-related injuries.
But those who where able to stay cool got to live the festival's motto of "fun by the forkful."
Some familiar faces, including anchors Jacquie Walker and Diana Fairbanks, lived the motto as well, participating in the event as judges, helping to chose the best of the best food at Taste .
Visitors to the first day of the festival had the chance to stop by the News 4 tent in Niagara Square, meet members of the News 4 team and spin the prize wheel.
Day one of the Festival wraps up at 9 p.m. Day two kicks off Sunday at 11 a.m. and runs until 7 p.m. along Delaware Avenue from Chippewa Street to Niagara Square.
